The Good Wife: Pluto square Uranus edition

OMG did you guys watch The Good Wife last night?  My heart!  People in suits have never been this interesting!  The show went from being a good show to a profoundly great show in a single hour.

And the whole time I was watching it all I could think was how much money I’d be willing to bet that Will’s Venus is at ten degrees Capricorn.  Yeah, yeah, he’s fictional, whatever.  So one of the writers has a Venus at ten degrees Cap.  The whole hour was basically a televised Greek drama depicting the current Uranus/Pluto square.  Uranus wants freedom at all costs and Pluto wants power and control.

Astrologers have been looking to this square for a couple years now, since it has been seen as a harbinger of a particular sort of upheaval and strife politically and culturally.  To put it in perspective, the last time we had a hard contact between the two planets was in the sixties and before that during the Depression.  Revolution, people, that’s what it’s all about.  This time around the concern is that Uranus and Pluto are in cardinal signs and Pluto, in particular, is in Capricorn, which values tradition, rules for rules sake, and stern authority.  You can probably see how astrologers are quick to attribute our current polarized political climate on these two heavenly bodies.

And there’s been a slew of politically themed tv dramas coming out lately, from House of Cards to Scandal that amp up the general distrust of political figures (Uranus in Aries) whilst simultaneously glamorizing them (Pluto in Capricorn).  Scintillating stuff.

But for my money the juice is in the personal.  If you’ve got these planets hitting your own chart hard right now than watching The Good Wife may be a pretty good remedial measure for you.  Hate your boss?  Your partner?  Your co-workers?  Feeling a revolution burning inside you?  Let The Good Wife live it out for you, seriously, the fall out on that show this season is going to be phenomenal.  RIVETING.  Great for television, lousy for your life.  Let these characters take the hit for you, they’re about to makes themselves utterly miserable.

Everyone was awesome and I have a feeling I’ll be talking about it more as we go, but last night was Will’s night.  Up till now he’s been so sympathetic and great, really understanding and such a good guy.  But last night he got betrayed but good.  And worse, it wasn’t the first time it’s happened to him recently.  When Diane betrayed him a couple episodes ago he showed his teeth for the first time, but last night was the real game changer.

The show in general has a really Plutonic feel to it, but last nights show was all Pluto all the time, and Will and his relationships with women (Venus) was the locus for most of it.  I said before that his character had Venus at ten degrees Capricorn, but only because that’s where Pluto is right now.  Of course when I looked up Josh Charles’ birthday (the actor who plays Will) it turns out that he’s got Venus conjunct Pluto natally, so he was pretty much born to play this guy.  At the end of last nights episode when Will says he’s going to win, and he’s going to take them all down, I believed him.  This is going to be a fight to the death in true plutonic fashion.

Get your popcorn and strap yourselves in, my little Milk Duds, it’s gonna be a bumpy season.
